Scientists and artists to search for common ground

They may be disciplines at opposite ends of the intellectual spectrum, but science and art will converge at the University of York next month in a quest to discover common ground.

Practitioners from across the world will gather on 5 September 2005 for a three-day conference, hosted by the University, to explore the relationship between science and art and the mutual support artists and scientists can offer within a wider cultural environment.

Rules of Engagement is organised by Arts Council England, Yorkshire in partnership with CNAP, a bioscience research centre at the University of York with additional support from Science City York.

The event a crucible of talks, events, performances and debate will pose provocative questions, such as:

  • When artists are natural transgressors and scientists trained to be cautious, are there risks as well as benefits?
  • Do artists have any responsibility towards scientific data, how it is manipulated and presented?

  • In this collision of politics, ethics and imagination spanning ecology, bioscience and deep space what are the Rules of Engagement?

Head of CNAP, Professor Dianna Bowles said: "We are very pleased to be in partnership with the Arts Council England, Yorkshire and to be hosting this exciting event in York.
